L'Assommoir by Émile Zola( Book )

833 editions published between 1873 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 5,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seventh novel in the Rougon-Macquart cycle, L'Assommoir (1877), is the story of a woman's struggle for happiness in working-class Paris. It was a contemporary bestseller, outraged conservative critics, and launched a passionate debate about the legitimate scope of modern literature. At the centre of the novel stands Gervaise, who starts her own laundry and for a time makes a success of it. But her husband Coupeau squanders her earnings in the Assommoir, the local drinking shop, and gradually the pair sink into poverty and squalor. L'Assommoir is the most finely crafted of Zola's novels, and this new translation captures not only the brutality but also the pathos of its characters' lives. This book is a powerful indictment of nineteenth-century social conditions, and the Introduction examines its relation to politics and art as well as its explosive effect on the literary scene
The belly of Paris by Émile Zola( Book )

584 editions published between 1855 and 2018 in 13 languages and held by 4,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little known in this country, The Belly of Paris (Le Ventre de Paris) is one of Emile Zola's most wonderfully descriptive, humorous, and exciting fictions. In this novel the author of Germinal, L'Assommoir, Nana and Therese Raquin chooses as his locale the newly built food markets of Paris. Into this extravagance of food - which Zola describes in set pieces that wet the tongue, excite the ear, and stir up the belly - he places his young hero, the half-starved Florent, who has just escaped imprisonment in Cayenne. Florent finds himself at odds with a world he now knows is unjust. Gradually he takes up with the local Socialists, who are more at home in bars than on the revolutionary streets
The debacle by Émile Zola( Book )

536 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 4,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Debacle seeks to explain why the Second Empire ended in a crushing military defeat and revolutionary violence. It focuses on ordinary soldiers, showing their bravery and suffering in the midst of circumstances they cannot control, and includes some of the most powerful descriptions Zola ever wrote. Zola skillfully integrates his narrative of events and the fictional lives of his characters to provide the finest account of this tragic chapter in the history of France."--Jacket

Restless house by Émile Zola( Book )

379 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 2,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Systematically exposing the contradictions that pervade bourgeois life, Zola reveals a multitude of adulteries and betrayals, a veritable 'melting pot' of moral and sexual degeneracy. This new translation captures the robustness of Zola's language and restores the omissions of earlier abridged versions
The dream by Émile Zola( Book )

552 editions published between 1888 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 2,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"However, belying its appearance as a simple fairy-tale, the work reveals many of Zola's characteristic themes, in particular the conflict between heredity and environment, between spirituality and sensuality between the powerful and the powerless. The dream of Angelique is at once reality and illusion, and this interplay provides the driving force of the novel. Above all, the novel is, as Zola himself described it, 'a poem of passion', displaying the lyrical dimension of his genius." "This translation by Michael Glencross, the first in English since that of Eliza Chase in 1893, recaptures the vigour of Zola'a original. The translator also provides an introduction that places the novel in the context of Zola's life and work as a whole."--BOOK JACKET

Money by Émile Zola( Book )

454 editions published between 1831 and 2018 in 13 languages and held by 1,892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now bankrupt after some failed gambles, Aristide Saccard, the former kingpin of the Paris Stock Exchange, desperately wants to get back to the top of the financial pile. When his powerful brother, the government minister Eugene Rougon, refuses to help him, he forms a partnership with the engineer Hamelin and founds the Banque Universelle, which speculates on public works in the Middle East. But as his greed and desire to outplay his rivals gets the better of him, the dashing and ruthless Saccard perilously begins to inflate the value of his enterprise using rumour, intrigue, financial manipulation and all the other tricks in the book.Inspired by real events and meticulously researched by Zola, Money is, in the wake of recent financial scandals, an all-too-topical exploration of the dynamics of greed, the excesses of capitalism and its dangerous relationship with politics and the press
The masterpiece by Émile Zola( Book )

391 editions published between 1886 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 1,860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Claude Lantier is an ambitious and talented young artist who has come from the provinces to conquer Paris but is conquered instead by the flaws of his own genius. Set in the 1860s and 1870s, it is the most autobiographical of the twenty novels in Zola's Rougon-Macquart series. It provides a unique insight into Zola's career as a writer and his relationship with Cezanne, a friend since their schooldays in Aix-en-Provence. It also presents a well-documented account of the turbulent Bohemian world in which the Impressionists came to prominence despite the conservatism of the Academy and the ridicule of the general public
A priest in the house by Émile Zola( Book )

350 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The arrival of Abbé Faujas in the provincial town of Plassans has profound consequences for the community, and for the family of François Mouret in particular. Faujas and his mother come to lodge with François, his wife Marthe, and their three children, and his cousin Marthe quickly falls under the influence of the priest. Ambitious and unscrupulous, Faujas gradually infiltrates into all quarters of the town, intent on political as well as religious conquest. Intrigue, slander, and insinuation tear the townsfolk apart, creating suspicion and distrust, and driving the Mourets to ever more extreme actions. In one of the most psychological of his novels, Zola links small-town politics to the greater political and national dramas of the Second Empire
The experimental novel, and other essays by Émile Zola( Book )

200 editions published between 1880 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five of these articles first appeared, translated into Russian, in the Messager deVE urope, a St. Petersburg review. The two others, entitled The Novel and Criticism, are but the gathering together of articles selected from a large number published in Le Bien Public and Le Voltaire. Allow me to publicly express my gratitude to the great nation which welcomed me so warmly, and adopted me, at a time when not a journal in Paris would accept what I wrote and everyone was my enemy in my literary battle. Russia, in one of my hours of pain and discouragement, revived my faith in myself, renewed my strength, and gave me a public, and that the most critical and impassioned of publics. Her criticism of my writings made me what I am to-day. I cannot speak of her without emotion, and I shall keep her in eternal remembrance. They are therefore polemics, manifestoes, if you will, written in the first flush of the idea, without any rhetorical subtilities. As they were to be translated into another tongue, I paid little attention to their literary form. My first intention was to rewrite them before publishing them in France
